Amouranth’s infamous eating habit returns in bizarre ASMR Twitch stream

Twitch streamer Kaitlyn ‘Amouranth’ Siragusa has taken her strange eating habit to new heights and it’s fair to say that it doesn’t make for comfortable viewing. 

The popular internet personality decided to dig into some pasta during her June 30 stream, before viewers started to realize that she wasn’t biting any of it, but just swallowing it whole instead. 

This isn’t the first time the strange technique has been uncovered during her streams, of course, as she can be seen eating soft foods in this way on a regular basis. However, this time things never worked out as she probably intended. 

Amouranth, InstagramAmouranth has over one million followers on Twitch.

The cosplayer, who often hosts dance streams on Twitch, is known for doing some things that would certainly raise a few eyebrows during streams, too, after confusing her viewers with a bizarre Twister stream in June – wearing a donkey headdress. 

This time, after working her way through a bowl of pasta during the broadcast, a piece seemed to get stuck in her throat. 

It goes without saying that not breaking up the food using her teeth was always going to cause problems, but what happened next might well have turned some fans’ stomaches – or made them laugh, depending on their humor. 

Amouranth seemed to be purposely edging towards the microphone as she attempted to swallow a piece of pasta, before coughing some of it back up, making a noise that not everybody would want the pleasure of hearing. 

The streamer comfortably let the food shoot right out of her mouth and it fell near her setup, but it didn’t phase her from continuing her ASMR stream attempt. The sounds here, though, aren’t likely to please many of the people watching at home. 

As noted earlier, this isn’t the first time that Amouranth has showcased her strange eating habit. In fact, when fans first noticed her doing it back in February 2019, she even went as far as offering an explanation – explaining that it wasn’t really a choice. 

“I can’t chew my food bro,” she said. “I have braces on the back of my teeth and if I chew my food, the wax comes off and my tongue gets cut up.”

Therefore, it would appear that the chances of the streamer starting to bite down on her food in the near future – at least – seems very slim indeed. 

Until then, if that time ever comes, fans might yet see this happen over and over again.

Travis Scott and PlayStation tease new PS5 “Cactus Jack” Nike Dunks

Travis Scott has revealed a new “TS5” teaser with PlayStation, which features a brief glimpse showcasing what appears to be a PS5 and Cactus Jack collaboration on a pair of Nike Dunk lows.

The 2020 king of collaborations, Scott, continues to up the ante. This time, he and Sony partnered to put together a teaser video, which is an obvious ode to the infamous Maxell “Blown Away Guy” advertisements from 1980.

In the social media commercial, Sony’s PlayStation headquarters are shown, followed by a few different employees who represent different aspects of the new console’s development (platform, design, and engineering). Afterward, Scott sits down, powers on a PS5, and is literally blown away.

Each employee is rocking some of Scott’s Cactus Jack merchandise, including one wearing a pair of his iconic Jordan 1 lows and one wearing a similar design, but on a pair of Nike Dunk lows. In the corner, a PS logo can be noticed by the sneaker’s heel.

It’s a short and sweet video, starting with some foreshadowing and teasing of the collaboration before finishing with a direct promotion for the PS5. An employee is seen wearing the PS5 Cactus Jack Dunks and then later, Scott himself appears to be wearing them as he kicks back and turns on the console.

In what might be obvious to those who have a keen eye for historic marketing content, the ending Scott portion of the clip is nearly a direct recreation of Maxell’s original ads from a couple decades ago. Those ads featured someone turning on one of the brand’s cassette tapes and experiencing the media quite physically. 

Similarly, Scott’s clothing, hair, and surrounding furniture are simultaneously hit with an unrelenting gust as soon as he powers on the PS5.

With the announcement from Sony that Scott has been enlisted as a “strategic creative partner,” it’s unclear exactly what the extent of this collaboration could mean. At the very least, fans can expect the two to work together on more projects.

One such project could be a pair of Cactus Jack sneakers, which would mean a three-way collab between Nike, Sony, and Scott’s own personal brand.

Scott’s sneaker collaborations typically sell out very quickly and then dominate the resale market, where resellers net huge profits just by lucking out and being among the first to invest in his reworked designs.

This sneaker follows the original Jordan 1 design, with an inverted swoosh logo on the outside, but in a contrasting colorway. Similarly, it seems to feature a PS5 logo at the heel (as other Nike and PlayStation collaborations have). It’s unknown whether these will be made available to the public or if they will be a “friends and family” symbolic release.
